    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    Prizes push cheats even further, an already difficult aspect of woodsball.

    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    I think the woodsball resurgence in general is not going anywhere. I have concerns about the fragility of the UK market. I love the UKWM and the guys behind it and will continue to support their events. But I do wish there were more events further north. There been attempts but the tourney scene...

    Sure, a segment of the woodland tourney scene is the old farts but you’re completely wrong if you think that’s all there is.

    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    I’d argue that Xball was not a healthy evolution, back in the day I loved it but christ it’s stale nowadays. We moved out of the woods primarily in pursuit of the TV dream, it was not in the best interests of players. There is plenty of younger players and teams who do UKWM, did the pro tour...

    Woodland Events - A flash in the pan ? ..... [Poll Test]

    No, tournament woodsball done right is a far better next step for rental/walk on players to take if they want to get competitive. The grind of Xball based formats does not offer anything like the value for money that can be achieved in the woodland game. This is how we pull in new blood to the...

    Gossip, scandal, bragging rites and all that Jazz ....

    I played the event and yes there were a number of problems (mostly covered above) but all in, despite them, I really enjoyed the GCC. I honestly believe mech/5.5 is the way forward for woodsball and I hope it sticks.

    Did that shizzle for nigh on 20 years, lived in or around Nottingham most of my life, had numerous friends and family work for the company at various levels including the studio. Without going full on rant, I had my fill some time ago.

    While we're in Nerdy corner Long since recovered from the curse of being heavily involved in GW I've recently started to get into board games and alternate miniature games. Pretty good an excuse as any to chill out with friends over a few drinks. Currently really enjoying XCOM: The Board Game...

    Hobbies other than paintball...

    A hobby that I've picked up relatively recently is planning and recording a gaming podcast with a few friends. Still early days (done 11 shows) but we're remarkably not completely crap and we're gradually trying to build up an audience. I would plug it here but I'm slightly afraid of ridicule...

    Is that when you carry a bloody great knife while rollerblading?

    Video games (mostly console, occasional PC), watch a lot of movies and because I've got an good mate who recently started working at their HQ I've found myself being pulled back into GW after a long absence. Started a new job last year which has been a considerable challenge so I've spent a...
